me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

The Baby is 3

Happy Birthday to Isabella!
Our baby turned 3 today. She is quite a different gal than when we first spotted her, calling out from the weeds at the edge of the bike trail more than 2 1/2 years ago.

Why was she out there all by herself?

Why did she first call out to us and not the rest of the hikers and bikers?

After the mower scared her off, we thought she wouldn't return again, but why did she call to us again the second time when we rode back past her at least 20 minutes later?

Why did she follow along behind me, pushing my bike, for nearly 1/4 mile back to the trail head?

Why did we send her home with my sister that night?

Why didn't Ginny, Danial and Sassy find a way to include her in their family, but instead returned her to us?

Why did I make up flyers to find her a new home?

Why did Beau immediately decide he would be a very quiet, patient observor of the new wee babe and take on his position as mentor?

All these questions, and one important answer.

It was meant to be that Isa would join our family and infuse us with her quirky yet loving spirit.

We all love you, Ping Pong.
